Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley defender Peter Ramage is expected to be out for six to eight weeks so who partners Martin Cranie is anyone`s guess.

I expect it to be Mvoto if fit with Nyatanga having an outside chance of playing if he proves his fitness.

If both of them aren`t fit enough then Flitcroft will either bring Hassell in at centre back or revert to a back three of Wiseman, Cranie and Kennedy.

Player to watch: McCourt

Has showed flashes of his talent in his few matches so far, now I`m hoping he is fitter and able to show more.

Middlesbrough Team News:

Jonathan Woodgate and Marvin Emnes could return to the squad following injury.

Player to watch: Butterfield

We all know what he can be capable of.

Match Facts & Stats

Middlesbrough have won 24 and lost 15 of the 50 previous league encounters.

The super reds did the double over Middlesbrough last season. It was the second time that they had achieved that with the first being the 1991/92 season.

Barnsley have picked up just one point from six games since beating Huddersfield for their only win of the season.

The reds have made their worst start to a season in 42 years, are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Championship and have the leakiest defence with 27 goals shipped in 11 games.

Chris O`Grady could make his 250th league start.

Scott Wiseman could make his 100th Barnsley appearance.
